Browse in VR with Chrome

Chrome has launched into the virtual world.

Daydreaming to browse

Got a Daydream-ready Android phone? Is your Chrome app updated to the latest version?

If so, next time you get things going in your Daydream headset, you will be able to open Chrome from the device’s virtual reality homescreen.

What’s more, you can fully navigate the web through the VR interface. As seems particularly apt for VR, voice search is up and running. You can even use Chrome’s well-known unique features like incognito mode.

Only in dreams

Chrome for Daydream is mostly a clone of the familiar mobile app with a redesigned mode of interaction. However, it's got some features unique to the VR systems.

The only one Google’s promoting at the outset is ‘cinema mode’, which is Daydream’s optimisation of web-streamed videos for viewing through the VR platform.

Show us your wares

Of course, this only works if you’ve got the hardware to support it. You need a Daydream-ready phone fitted to a Daydream headset, or one of Lenovo’s standalone VR headsets, the Mirage Solo.

Regarding software, there was a fresh Chrome release at the start of August. You’re going to want to be updated to that iteration at least.

Websites specifically designed as Daydream experiences are bound to get more popular: what’s your best idea for a website that would be a VR attraction in its own right?
